Guide for stain removal

Removing stains from trousers can seem challenging, but with the right methods and tools, it can be a simple process. We've put together some recommendations that will hopefully help you get stains out of trousers. Remember to always test any product on a small, hidden area of the fabric first to make sure it won't damage the material.


Try these 6 tips, they might just help with your stains:

 1. Quick reaction

It's important to act quickly when you spot a stain. The longer the stain has to set, the harder it can be to remove it.


2. Identify the stain

Different types of stains require different treatment methods. Identify the type of stain, whether it's oil, grass, blood, coffee, ink, etc.


3. Pre-treatment

Before you wash your trousers, you need to pre-treat the stain. Here are some tips for different types of stains:


- Oil and Grease: Cover the stain with talcum powder, baking soda or cornstarch to absorb the oil. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and then brush it away. Apply a small amount of detergent to the stain and rub gently.


- Grass: Make a mixture of one part vinegar and two parts water. Apply the mixture to the stain and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing it with cold water.


- Blood: Rinse the stain with cold water as soon as possible. Then use a mixture of cold water and salt or an enzyme-based stain remover.


- Coffee: Mix a small amount of washing-up liquid with white vinegar and cold water. Apply the mixture to the stain and let it sit for 15-30 minutes.


4. Washing

After the pre-treatment, wash the trousers as normal, but make sure to follow the washing instructions on the garment label. Use the hottest water temperature that the fabric can withstand as this often helps to remove stains more effectively.


5. Check the stain

After washing, check if the stain has been removed before drying the trousers. If the stain is still visible, repeat the pre-treatment and washing process. Drying clothes with stains can make them harder to remove later.


6. Alternative methods

If the above methods don't work, you can try commercial stain removers that are designed to tackle specific types of stains. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.


By following these steps, you can hopefully effectively remove stains from trousers and extend their life. Keep in mind, however, that these are tips and recommendations, and we obviously can't promise you that your stains will disappear.

Good luck and good luck.
